About this video

Starbucks Drake Hands is a meme where people silently gaze at the camera to Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home." From KnowYourMeme.com: On October 1st, 2013, Californian model Piper Kennedy reluctantly gave her phone number to a local barista Brody “Odag" Ryan Curtis. The next day, Brody texted her a short video of himself silently smiling and rubbing his right hand on his face with the Drake song “Hold On, We’re Going Home" playing in the background as an attempt to seduce her. That same day, her friend DJ Ben Roc posted the video to his Instagram account, where it gained more than 1,100 likes in six days.
